Alan Woods is one of the leaders of the International Marxist Tendency. He’s been a major player in Marxist circles in England for decades. He also happens to be right about this major point.

It can’t be stressed enough: “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

When the oligarchs put their welfare above the masses, WE need to tell them “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

When the bankster frauds continue to run the world into the ground, they need to hear “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

When the US Congress and the President pay scant attention to the workers of the country, and I would argue that this is exactly what they are doing, they need to hear “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

When the centrists put the welfare of the capitalists in front of the welfare of the many, they need to hear “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

Whenever a boss decides that they are more important the the people that work for them, they need to hear “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

Every time you decide to support the bad because it’s practical and doable, to the harm of the many, you need to hear “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

Indeed, it’s time we all hear “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

Put it in your hearts, let it be your mantra, always remember “No light bulb will shine, no wheel will move, without the kind permission of the workers of this world.”

  1. It’s, perhaps, the most important lesson to remember right now.

  2. Arise ye prisoners of want

    For reason in revolt now thunders

    And at last ends the age of cant.

    Away with all your superstitions

    Servile masses arise, arise

    We’ll change henceforth the old tradition

    And spurn the dust to win the prize.

    Chorus:

    So comrades, come rally

    And the last fight let us face

    The Internationale unites the human race.

    So comrades, come rally

    And the last fight let us face

    The Internationale unites the human race.

    No more deluded by reaction

    On tyrants only we’ll make war

    The soldiers too will take strike action

    They’ll break ranks and fight no more

    And if those cannibals keep trying

    To sacrifice us to their pride

    They soon shall hear the bullets flying

    We’ll shoot the generals on our own side.

    Chorus:

    No saviour from on high delivers

    No faith have we in prince or peer

    Our own right hand the chains must shiver

    Chains of hatred, greed and fear

    E’er the thieves will out their booty

    And give to all a happier lot.

    Each at the forge must do their duty

    And we’ll strike while the iron is hot.

    Chorus:

    The Kucinich Plan (simplified):

    1. Be a Democrat.
    2. Think like a Democrat.
    3. Vote like a Democrat.
    4. Lead like a Democrat.
    5. Live like a Democrat.

  3. will get no love from me.  

    Their version of ‘helping the workers’ is by controlling them in their name–in fact what ol’ Karlo wanted is not any different than capitalism really, in that you have a small rarified bunch in charge of a huge majority– “for their own good”–just as Marx himself got rid of the Anarchists from the C.I. in an underhanded and anti-democratic way, they simply aren’t interested in human rights or freedom.  

    The logical endpoint of his thought really was Stalin, Lenin, Trotsky, Mao.  Top down totalitarianists in the name of what’s good for ‘the proletariat,’ willing to kill millions and millions —  for their own good.

    That doesn’t mean that communism or socialism is wrong in principle, it’s not –just Marx’s twisted version of it.
